Maruti and Hyundai continue to dominate in sales with 15 cars being from the two manufacturers in our top 20 list.
The list of top 20 selling cars has the usual suspects in March 2017 as well with Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai dominating proceeding with 75% models being shared between the top two car makers of the country. So let’s talk about others since the table is quite self explanatory. On the bottom of this pile is Fiat with just 353 units being sold, sadly only 4 Abarths, while soon to leave India, General Motors managed to sell a dismal 1318 units and Skoda was the third worst performer at 1696 units, only 1 unit of the Yeti selling for the Czech brand last month.
Volkswagen has been riding on the Ameo and managed to sell 4792 units last month while Nissan outperformed the Germans thanks to the Datsun redi-GO, managing a total sales of 5309 units. Ford is the other car maker to have sold under 10,000 units with 8700 cars being sold, the EcoSport being the top performer while 41 units of the Mustang were sold last month.
Renault sold 12,188 units with more than 10,000 units coming from the Kwid alone while Toyota managed to sell 13,796 units and the Innova Crysta accounted for more than 50% sales with 7252 units. Tata Motors’ Tigor was well received with 3011 units, the Tiago continuing its good run with 4619 units and the overall sales of the Indica maker was 15,433 units. Honda was just ahead of Tata with 18,950 units sold last month, the City being the top seller at 6271 units while the recently launched WR-V managed 3833 units.
Mahindra was at number three spot thanks to the Bolero’s impressive 8681 unit sales in March 2017 with the UV specialist selling a total of 23,068 units. Hyundai saw an increase in sales to 44,757 units, the Creta touching 10,001 units while the Grand i10 and Elite i20 both sold 12,000 units plus each. Maruti Suzuki sold an astonishing 1,27,695 units, the top selling car being the Alto at 18,868 units while the second most selling car isn’t the Swift or DZire, it’s the Baleno with sales of 16,426 units last month. The Vitara Brezza outsold the Creta by a mere 56 units while 2088 and 5209 units of the S-Cross and Ignis were sold by NEXA showrooms. Will Maruti and Hyundai sustain this growth?
